Audience Recording by Jerry Moore

Jerry: "Lineage: Sony 153 master, w/ ECM 33P's, on Maxell UDXL-II's, Dolby B, copied via Teac AN-180 Dolby box onto Sony TC 755, Scotch Classic 10.5 inch reel, 7.5 ips, Dolby B - Transfer by Rob Berger (1/05), Sony TC 850>Teac AN-180>Sony SBM1 super bit mapper>Tascam CD-Rw4U.

Just so, hopefully, nobody can misunderstand what they got: Came off my cassette master, except for Scarlet/Fire, on which my master had speed fluctuations. THAT part came off another cassette, that had been patched out of the 153 at the show. I took those two cassette masters, and made a 10 inch reel copy, 7.5 ips, Dolby B, this within a few days of the show itself. That reel, BTW, I would call a "2nd generation" copy, though most people would call it "1st" - rule of thumb, if you see one of my own old lineages, subtract a generation to translate to current taper-speak. That 10 inch reel copy is what Rob Berger transferred, and what a lot of you have, and are hopefully enjoying."

Subject: Were you there?
I'm just in the very beginning stages/brainstorming a book on the concert from 5.8.77.

Widely considered to be the best show the band ever played, I'm hoping to gather enough photographs, recollections and other assorted information to turn the book into an oral biography. But of a show, not a person.

If you were there and would like to tell me about the show/what you recall/what you saw please be in touch. No memory is too small!

Feel free to email me at

Subject: Notes From A (Semi-)Noob
Just a few notes after listening a few times from someone who's not all that new to the Dead thing (saw my 1st show in '87) but is fairly new to the streaming/downloading side of the experience.

- This is an excellent-sounding AUD recording. Obviously, it's doesn't have the low end of a soundboard, but a very professional-sounding recording nonetheless.

- This is probably the tightest and most consistent Dead show I've ever heard. I don't know that it has some of skyrocketing peaks of some of the better late-60s Dead show I've heard, but there's a hypnotic quality to the long jams that just about peerless in my experience.

- The "Dancing In The Street" is probably the best I've heard by them. I loves me some Mu-Tron! :D

- Jerry really gets into the pinch harmonics on the solos here, particularly on "Loser" and "NFA". Must have been listening to the Band (or ZZ Top, perhaps?) before the show. :)

Conclusion: A very solid, very tight show. Definitely worth downloading.

This AUD has the wonderful distinction of NO burp between Scarlet Begonias and Fire on the Mountain. Most downloads give one the unnecessary option to hear only Fire, and in so doing leave an electronic burp in mid-transition, most irritating. AUDs have the advantage of the full ambiance of a concert, with Jerry filling a cavernous hall.
This is the Hope Diamond of the five crown jewels played from 4-9 May. They blew the roof off Boston Garden the night before, i was there, we were bouncing off the walls. But this delivers that Deadbeat rhythm I want 24/7. I have listened to this thousands of times since I got my tapes in 1978, of my suitcase of tapes, this is the ONE.
Thanks again for Scarlet Mountain complete!!!
A very Grateful Golfer.

Subject: Big Fan.
I KNEW there had to be a Jerry Moore tape of this show (I'm a big fan of Both). A bit distorted on the highs, but not nearly as muddy as the other auds I've come across. Although I miss the gut wrenching Phretless Phil slides that dip into pachyderm frequencies... The crowd is everpresent without being overbearing like some of those Capitol Theatre '70 tapes (siddown! siddawn, awshole, siddawn!)
I mean to say: NICE

Not that I needed another copy of this show. Luckily, it's easy to give this one out to the kids who think DMB were the first jam-band.
